As you may have heard, Stampin’ Up!® and Becky Higgins decided to end their three year Project Life® partnership effective May 31, 2017. When the new 2017-2018 catalog on June 1, Stampin’ Up began offering a new line called Memories & More instead.
I’m not a scrapbooker or pocket memory keeper, so I never really looked very closely at the Project Life offerings in the past. When I attended Stampin’ Up’s OnStage event back in April, I had the opportunity to create a Make & Take card using some of the Memories & More product line and LOVED it! I had never really thought about using these types of memory keeping products to make cards, but what a great idea! It’s such a quick and easy way to create a cute card in a hurry.
For my card today, I used one of the 3 x 4″ cards from the Color Theory Card Pack. I cut a piece Dapper Denim Card Stock to 3.5 x 10″ then scored it at 5″ to create a top folding card base. I decided to create a notecard size base instead of my usual A2 size because the proportions worked much better since I was using one of the smaller cards from the Memories & More card pack.
I could have used one of our Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes for this card, but I really wanted Dapper Denim look. If you prefer, you could always use one of the note cards and just add a piece of 3-1/2 x 5″ Dapper Denim card stock to the front of it. This would still give you the Dapper Denim look I have, but with a fully white interior for your card.
For my focal panel, I adhered the Memories & More card on a piece of Whisper White Card Stock using Snail Adhesive. For a bit of embellishment, I die cut the two smaller snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I dabbed on a bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the back of each snowflake using a Stamping Sponge then adhered them to the focal panel. For a bit of extra bling, I added a small gold dot from the Metallic Enamel Shapes in the center of each snowflake.
To assemble the card, I adhered the focal panel to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Since I was using a dark card stock for my card base, I adhered a piece of Whisper White Card Stock on the inside of the card as a signature panel. For a final bit of embellishment, I wrapped some Gold 1/8″ Ribbon around the card then tied it off in a small bow and that completed my card.
I’m entering this card in the following challenge:
If you would like to see more of my work today, I’m also guest posting over on Catherine Pooler’s blog today. I’m showcasing a card I created using products from her recent Freshly Picked release which is available in her online store. Here’s a little sneak peek for you.
Until next time …
